L’Antichambre founder Anne Pascale Mathy-Devalck originally set out to recreate vintage scents. However she soon discovered the joy of creating her own fragrances and wanted to pass this experience on to her customers by offering personalised perfumes. After seeking expertise from master perfumers in Grasse, Mathy-Devalck has developed 50 bases from carefully sourced raw ingredients, and these can be worn alone or combined in a diverse array of scents. In addition to custom blends, two house perfumes are also available at L’Antichambre, alongside candles and home fragrance. Visit the in-store laboratory in Brussels to concoct your own unique perfume and take home a beautifully packaged and very personal memento or gift.
